CDT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

CDT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides Customers with a private cloud located at the CDT data centers. Using a self-service portal, CDT IaaS Customers have on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released as virtual machines on a pay-per-use basis.

CDT IaaS provides shared virtual infrastructure that reduces or eliminates the need for capital expenditures and allows Customers to realize cost savings compared to physical server environments. Options such as server management, increased storage, site-to-site virtual private network devices, backup and restore, file transfer server, RAM and infrastructure disaster recovery (iDR) are available during and after provisioning.

CDT IaaS Model Comparison

The following chart compares the different CDT IaaS offerings.

VIRTUAL SERVER SIZE CCU* MEMORY (GB) STORAGE (GB)**
Small 2 4 90
Medium 4 8 90
Large 8 16 90
Extra-Large 16 32 90

* A CCU is equivalent to the capacity of 2 GHz of a single CPU Core.
** 90 GB storage is intended for the operating system, future service packs and add-ons.

CDT IaaS is a private cloud completely contained within the CDT data centers which allow customers the ability to provision resources through a web portal from a pool of on-demand virtual machines (VM) on a pay-per-use basis.

Customers can create and delete both x86 (Windows Server, Linux) and PowerVM (AIX) VMs with no capital expense. Customers are able to install and maintain their own applications while CDT takes care of the physical resources and the operating system. Optional backup/restore and iDR services provide the Customer with a worry-free computing environment.

Virtual Machine

Standard x86 virtual machines are available in increments. Additional memory and storage along with backup/restore and infrastructure iDR services can be added at any time through the CDT IaaS web portal.

VIRTUAL MACHINE SIZE CCU* MEMORY (GB) STORAGE (GB)**
Small 2 4 90

** 90 GB storage is intended for the operating system, future Service Packs, and add-ons.

OPERATING SYSTEM

CDT IaaS offers Customers three operating system options in its base offering:

  • IBM AIX
  • Microsoft Windows Server (64-bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (64-bit)

CDT IaaS provides N (current version) and N-1 (previous version) versions of each of the following operating systems:

OS N N-1
IBM AIX 7.1 6.1
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 2008 R2
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x 6.x
Server Management

Three options are available for server management.

  • CDT IaaS Managed – AV/OS patching with license. The CDT vendor manages the antivirus and operating system security patching.
  • CDT IaaS Unmanaged / Licensed – The CDT vendor provides the operating system image and license. The Customer is responsible for the VM. The CDT vendor monitoring and support are limited to the infrastructure and hypervisor. The Customer is responsible for the monitoring and support of the virtual machine.
  • CDT IaaS Unmanaged / Unlicensed – The CCDT vendor provides the operating system image and Customer provides the operating system license. The CDT vendor monitoring and support are limited to the infrastructure and hypervisor. The Customer is responsible for the monitoring and support of the virtual machine.

  • Choosing a base image (e.g., Windows, AIX, RHEL)
  • Changing base sizes (e.g., S, M, L, XL)
  • Changing memory, storage, CCU
  • Adding/removing backups (Tier I/II)
  • Adding/removing disaster recovery (Tier I/II)
2. Service Request Management System

All requests should be submitted via a Service Request. Submission types include (are not limited to):

  • Requests to discontinue CalCloud – IaaS services
  • Requests for billing corrections
  • Requests for routing or physical network changes
  • Establishing connections to legacy equipment

Can I use any server names I want in CDT IaaS?

Customers will be allowed to use their existing virtual machine names for servers being migrated into the CDT IaaS environment. Any new virtual machines will be required to use the CDT IaaS standard naming convention. 

How will the billing work?

Customers will be billed in one-month increments based on the resources provisioned during that timeframe. 

Who is responsible for server software installation?

The Customer is responsible for any applications installed on provisioned virtual machines.
